Re: torrent + school firewall

Well, I have never had to do this before, so I will just be talking from presumption. I am interested to see how this works, if it does.

In the Azureus settings, there is an option to set the listening port, and that is default set to 6881. I believe that if you simply change that to 21, it will tell your copy of Azureus to attempt to connect to peers through that port, and circumvent specific port closures on your firewall.

That being said, I'm not an expert on port forwarding, and depending on how the firewall is setup, it may or may not work.'s worth a try.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
